Dassault Systèmes Completes CST Acquisition

High-Tech, Transportation and Mobility, Aerospace and Defense, Energy, Life Sciences and Other Industries Can Experience Full Spectrum Electromagnetic Simulation

VELIZY-VILLACOUBLAY, France - October 3rd, 2016 - Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced the completion of the acquisition of CST - Computer Simulation Technology AG, the technology leader in electromagnetic (EM) and electronics simulation based in Germany, for 220 million euros.  Dassault Systèmes will integrate CST solutions into its portfolio of industry solution experiences based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to offer a new standard in multiphysics and multiscale simulation. 

CST STUDIO SUITE software is used by designers and engineers at more than 2,000 leading companies in the high-tech, transportation and mobility, aerospace and defense, and energy industries to evaluate all types of EM effects during every stage of electronic system design processes. CST’s customers include Airbus Defence and Space, Bosch Group, Frauscher Sensor Technology and Sirona. 

EM simulation is an essential part of the development of connected products to ensure the performance, reliability and safety of their interactions with their surrounding environment.  With the integration of CST, Dassault Systèmes will offer full spectrum EM simulation of autonomous cars, connected homes, medical equipment, wearable electronics and other smart objects.  Customers can quickly create and analyze high fidelity electromagnetic behavioral models that simulate electronic, antenna, electrical device and electromechanical product function across all frequencies and length scales, as well as access design synthesis and simulation tools needed for intricate electronic systems design.
